It snows south of I-40?
Sort of. If I get more then 0.50” it will be the most I’ve seen in almost 5 years. Feb 2015 was our last significant event.
Winter 2009-10 Snowfall: 11.5 in. :)
Winter 2010-11 Snowfall: 15.5 in. :)
Winter 2011-12: Trace
Winter 2012-2013: 0.25 in.
Winter 2013-14: 10.6 (9.5 on 2/12)
Winter 2014-2015: 10.25 in.
Winters 2015-2019: basically nothing
Winter 2019-2020:
2/8/20: 4.25”

Things I know beyond a shadow of a doubt: The Nashville sNOw dome is a very real thing along with Chattanooga being in one of the worst geographic locations in the country for snow chances with the southern end-opening valley that allows warm air to funnel through. I'll continue to take my new approach of not believing in any accumulating snow forecast until it is actively falling and accumulating on surfaces.

Calling for up to 3 inches of snow in the Southern Plateau. 

The main thing that happened with this event was the front was faster so therefore it pushed the event further south.

Right at 1” in Northeast Hamblen County (about 4 miles NE of Morristown). Still coming down moderately.

Some heavier returns near Knoxville currently. Hopefully heads my way. Could push me closer to 2”.

I ended up with .4" total for the day. First round in the middle of day laid down a couple of tenths which partially melted. Got another good coating about dark.

From MRX...Reported East TN Snow Totals
Maynardville in Union County appears to be the winner at 3.0”.
Most areas saw a Trace to 2”.

Some thoughts from OHX:

Well that was a very busy evening shift full of wintry fun! Some post-event thoughts from my fried brain: Snow forecasting in Tennessee is always a challenge, and this event was no exception. Despite snow falling aloft all day long, a layer of dry air from the surface to 700mb evaporated nearly all of it that fell across the northwest two-thirds of Middle Tennessee. Over our southern and eastern counties, however, low levels were saturated and anywhere from a dusting to over 3” of snow fell. From what I’ve seen, models handled this event quite poorly with some like the GFS showing this dry layer well, yet still spitting out unreasonable 3-6” snow accumulations for the entire cwa. Our staff wisely ignored the models and kept forecast snow amounts low (0-1”) which ended up being quite close to reality - except the higher elevations of our Cumberland Plateau counties overachieved (as usual) with 2-3+”. This event was yet another reminder to not treat model output as gospel, as we unfortunately see people doing all the time on social media.

Yes, Huntsville with the surprise inch again. How many times in the last decade have they outperformed Memphis and Nashville?

They have have at least 4 or 5 events in the past decade of 3+ inches of snow in north alabama which is pathetic for the rest of us in middle tn to think about( excluding n/w sections )
